TODAY has been the turn of GCSE students to enjoy their moment of glory by celebrating another fantastic set of results across the town.

Cowley saw some outstanding individual performances with a number of students gaining impressive A* and A grades.

Charlie Dwyer achieved five A*s and five grade As while Luke Doherty got five A*s and four As.

Sophia Stephenson gained three A*s and seven As.

Principal Cameron Sheerhan said: “It is a pleasure to see so many superb individual performances. As ever students have worked incredibly hard and I admire the commitment and determination of those young people who manage to achieve high grades across such a broad range of disciplines.

“This year has seen further turbulence in the examination system with Ofqual warning schools that GCSE results including English Maths and Science were likely to “look different” with grades possibly dropping because of changes to the exams and the patterns of entry. In light of this uncertainty I am pleased that Cowley has maintained its attainment of students.

“We look forward to welcoming back many of our students into our sixth form college in September and wish our students every success for the future.”

St Cuthbert’s enjoyed their best ever results. Passes in English increased by 12 per cent at A* - C.

Acting principal Angela New said: “These results reflect the hard work of the pupils, staff and governors and will ensure a bright future for the school and more importantly for the individual pupils.”

The chair of governors Father Phil Swanson added: “It is pleasing to see that the hard work of both staff and pupils has paid off in our results.

Among those students achieving exceptional results were Alanya Tunstall with ten A*s A grades and Lauren Atherton with eight A* A grades.

Brothers Matthew and Liam Ashcroft gained 12 A* A grades between them.
